about

A song about being beaten up by Millwall fans in Plumstead, in 1995. May have been on acid.

lyrics

Well blow me, here comes the 53
Gonna dive down to the Deep End
£3 pills and punching out the bin
What’s the odds we’re going nowhere

Chiselling builders gather ‘round the baize
In The Windmill on the common
Eight-ball one and now it’s time to run
Giant Steps down to the Raglan

Oh I see you. Creeper’s creeping cos it’s what creepers do
Oh I see you

Dear oh dear, who’s was the bright idea
For a Thunderbird promotion
Slip an infinite ring, then someone has a swing
So much shiz swilling round the toilet

I can’t see you. I can’t see any of us making it through.
I can’t see you.

Trees and wine, then blood and flies
Millwall fans in the back of a scaffolder’s van

Nice strong tea, who’s got the leccy key?
Where’s the guy who looks like Danzig?
Strawberry milk then time to go again
To The Venue on the back of horse

I can’t see you. I can’t see any of us making it through.
I can’t see you.

Trees and wine, then blood and flies
Millwall fans leave the back of a scaffolder’s van
Here they come, singing songs about someone’s old man
Bermondsey Boys stick the boot in
